Mazda’s managing executive officer in charge of domestic business, Nobuhide Inamoto, said, “We are quite pleased that the all-new Mazda Premacy has attracted so many orders and far exceeded our sales plan. We expect that its popularity, and the high demand for Mazda’s unique i-stop idling stop system, will continue to drive our sales in Japan.”
